Shantek One is our new platform that will be fully integrated in to Wheel of Wealth 3D being our first cross platform game and all future products. Users have a single account for all Shantek Studios products and your in game currency earned or purchased can be spent in any of our products. All purchased content for a specific game will also be available across all platforms that game is available on at no extra charge.

As Wheel of wealth 3D gets further in to development, we are looking at ways to engage with our community and fanbase in the upcoming release. The game (and all our future online games) will feature a cartoon avatar/profile picture system with the aim to have a heap of characters to choose from along with a bunch of accessories for each character (glasses, hat etc.)

We are giving our users the opportunity to purchase a slot to have their own picture turned in to a cartoon and put in to the game with options to get a digital copy to keep. We are taking a limited number of users initially and plan to expand closer to release. Each character in the game will get a small bio attached to them in the avatar selection screen and the users avatar will follow your user account across all our present and future games. All characters can be used by any of our players worldwide.

Below are the packages we have available:

Basic VIP Package – $50.00 AUD

– Exclusive VIP badge on your profile within all our online games.
– Receive 3x the in game currency from watching ads.
– Receive 3x the in game currency on all purchases made in the App Store.
– Exclusive priority support email for VIP customers.
– Exclusive access to all upcoming development builds or betas that we run.
– Exclusive VIP email list, be kept up to date on all things Shantek Studios and Shantek One.
– Satisfaction of knowing that you are supporting a local developer.

Please note: This package DOES NOT include the cartoon avatar  if you are interested in this, please review the below packages.

One of a Kind VIP Package – $250

All the Basic VIP perks + a picture you send us being turned in to a game avatar by our amazing artist.

All our artwork is being done by our freelance artist Jonathan Munro. Be sure to check out his Facebook page.

We plan to release our games to all platforms possible without any assistance, however purchasing any of the above packages supports our game development and helps speed up the development process along with the quality of the games we want to bring to market. As we’ve been developing exclusively on Windows platforms in the past, cross platform development has a much higher cost with test hardware as is what all funds raised will be used to purchase. All support is greatly appreciated.

Help us develop and test Wheel of Wealth 3D (cross platform)

Work is underway on Wheel of Wealth 3D and we need your help!

Wheel of Wealth on Windows Phone was the first big project released from Shantek Studios many years ago and the decision has been made to redesign it from scratch using Unity 3D and going cross platform.

However this won’t be any ordinary beta testing, we will be bringing users who wish to participate in on the ground level. Testers will get to help us in developing the game with plans to release work REALLY early to our testers in the development cycle with the initial builds being more for game logic and just enough UI to play the game with the UI side of the game to be done at a later stage in the testing.

This is going to allow us to take feedback on game play and then on the UI as we design it and allow us to implement as much feasible feedback as possible to help us launch the best product we can.

If you wish to participate in the testing on Windows (Phone and PC/Tablet), iOS (iPhone & iPad) or Android (Phone & Tablet) head over to our mailing list and sign up to be notified as soon as we have more info.

Thanks for your ongoing support

Card Arcade 3D in planning.. again!

posted in: News, Windows Phone | 0

First of all, happy new year. 2016 wasn’t very eventful for me at Shantek Studios, studying a full time game development diploma, working close to full time and having a second kid (5 month old) in the house really takes most of your time so it’s been a while with not much coming out of Shantek Studios recently. 

In 2016 we started planning stages for sequels to Wheel of Wealth and Card Arcade, but due to time constraints and funding issues these were put on hold short term. 
I’m pleased to announce Card Arcade 3D has entered the early stages of planning with the intention of launching by the end of 2017 if all goes to plan. We currently don’t have much to share on the game except we are staying loyal to the fan base that gave us our start and will still be launching to Windows 10 and Mobile along side other platforms (with plans of a soft launch to the Microsoft platforms first), with the Windows 10/Mobile version set to include Xbox live status and achievements. 

Once the game is further along in development and we have a working demo video, we are hoping to launch a kickstarter again with some good perks including getting your face made in to an avatar or being used on a face card in the game – but this will be once we have more to show so you can get a feel for the game. 

Stay tuned here for updates on the game as we will share progress updates every month on how the game is coming along. 

I look forward to a successful year. Thanks for your support.
